( KTRS ) A Columbia man who robbed six banks and used a bicycle as his getaway vehicle will spend almost five years in federal prison.
Shaun Christopher Becker has been sentenced to four years and nine months in prison without parole. He was also ordered to pay $4,490 in restitution.
Becker admitted to robbing six banks in Columbia between November 2014 and January 2015. Prosecutors say in each case he rode a bicycle to the bank, went inside and handed a note demanding money to a bank teller.
Becker told an FBI agent he committed the robberies to support a heroin addiction.
